His line "I walk by faith, not by sight. If you pay attention, you'll notice he's listening to the gunshots first then using that information to one-shot the bad guys one by one.. Another subtle event that most only realize in hindsight, the bar fight which makes the villain take notice of our hero is caused when the previously mentioned rapist takes offense at Eli shooing the bar's cat away when getting his drink; he couldn't hear the cat prowl across the bar table and his hand knocked into it when he reached for his drink He also bumps into things gently a few times, such as the dresser in the shack near the start, and later his feet on the stairs leading up to the strange house and when he reaches the top step, he holds his gun in front of him.

He knows there will be a door there, but doesn't know exactly where until he bumps into it with the barrel of the gun. He seemingly ignores the gold chain on the dead body in exchange for a pair of boots. Obviously, he doesn't see it but he finds the boots once he feels around for them. When he flips open the Zippo lighter to trade to the shopkeeper, he holds his hand over the flame to check that it's working. He doesn't react in any way to the skeleton in the abandoned car either, even though the skull is just inches from his face.

Even in a post-apocalyptic world full of desiccated corpses, you'd expect a sighted man to at least glance at such a thing. Earlier in the film the morning after the cat meal. He left his iPod on all night so its battery's next to empty. You see him pressing the play and stop button thinking it might work.

You could look at it as an act of frustration, but the truth is he couldn't see the low battery signal flash. The shopkeeper identifies Eli's iPod and the latter replies with a simple 'is it?

An example of foreshadowing not having to do with Eli: Carnegie is reading up on Mussolini near the beginning. Obviously, they're both dictators in one way or another but it also points to Carnegie's fate which mirrors Mussolini's fall at the hands of his own people. In the opening scene, was Eli clicking his tongue to get the cat's attention, or was he using echolocation to see where it was?

Freudian Excuse : Carnegie's views on faith and the book's power stems from his pre-war childhood with his redneck parents.

Gatling Good : An antique hand-cranked model, even. Mounted to a modern van. Ghost City : San Francisco is this. And practically reduced to a pile of rubble, to boot.

God Is Good : Eli manages to survive 30 years in his present condition and is unstoppable and untouchable until his destiny is complete and his disciple carries on in his stead.

Plus, every person who opposes Eli ends up dead within a matter of days. Humiliation Conga : Carnegie first finds out that Eli's Bible is locked, then once he gets the town handyman to pick the lock, he finds the Bible is in braille. After getting over this, he gets Solara's mom who is blind to read it, but she laughs him off and notes that he'll die from gangrene soon.

Then he gets to crawl out and see his bar get torn to pieces, with his men doing nothing. The topper has to be his last man, surveying the destruction around him, and wisely pulling up a chair and doing nothing, while staring at his boss.

I'm a Humanitarian : People eating other people is apparently fairly common, but still looked down upon.

They're also Raiders whose only experience has been shooting up the occasional unarmed wastelander, and are not trained marksmen. Improbable Aiming Skills : Eli has about thirty years worth of practice surviving the dangers of traveling alone in a post-apocalyptic world but considering that he's blind the trope counts.

It's implied he might benefit from some Divine Intervention. Karmic Death : While this world has become a crapsack, lots of people die from bad karma catching up to them. Kevlard : During the fight with the bandits out in the desert, the fat guy with the chainsaw is able to stand up to several slashes across the stomach before Eli finally kills him.

Kick the Dog : Carnegie likes abusing Solara's mother. Redridge shoots a random mook because Eli escaped his room and he happened to be the guard that night. Know When to Fold 'Em : At the end, when when Carnegie realizes too late that his men are now too few to oppress the town, he shambles out to see them looting the bar. One of his remaining goons surveys the scene, then calmly grabs a chair rather than fight a hopeless battle.

Laser-Guided Karma : The raider who shoots a random wastelander and rapes another is beaten to death, Carnegie dies from a festering shotgun wound while watching his "kingdom" fall apart, and Eli, failing to fight the rapist gang on the road, has to fight them at the bar later, which brings him to the attention of Carnegie. Justified when you remember who's supposed to be running the show.

Locked Room Mystery : How did Eli escape from custody? Manipulative Bastard : Carnegie; his Evil Plan is all about manipulating the weak and the desperate with holy words. He manipulates everybody, including his inner circle, which makes it kind of awesome when Redridge decides to force him to bargain for his cooperation.

We don't know! Eli is aptly named. Eli was one of the Hebrew names for God. It's also a shortened version of Elijah, a prophet of the Old Testament who brought Judaism back to Samaria and drove out believers in the pagan God Baal.

Eli is the name of one of the Judges in the Bible. He was blind by the time he died.

It also means "my lord is God". Solara follows Eli from east to west and, at the end, claims that she'll return home. What else rises in the east, sets in the west, and reappears in the east once again? Carnegie was a noted philanthropist and was responsible for founding many libraries during his lifetime Meaningless Villain Victory : Yay, I've got the book Miles to Go Before I Sleep : Eli seems happy to just curl up and die once he's fulfilled his mission.

Milky White Eyes : Averted with Claudia, who was born blind. Played straight with Eli, as part of a The Reveal. Mook Chivalry : Averted; in the bar fight scene Eli is clearly taking on up to three people at once, if not in the exact same instant. As it is, he needs to use force to keep the people in line. He believes having a higher power to believe in and, more importantly, work for , will allow him to control them much easier. He also doesn't have the manpower to expand, which wouldn't be a problem if he had the Bible.

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Eli recites a typical prayer of thanks while Solara is his guest, and Solara mimics it the next morning at breakfast with Carnegie, which clues him in to Eli's possession of a Bible. No Bikes in the Apocalypse : Played straight.

Sure, Eli may not have use for a bike, but no one else ever uses them either. Off with His Head! Only One Name : Everyone.

How many families still exist? The comic back-story gives Carnegie's name as Billy.

Sometimes, however, he's as straightforward and obvious as they come. In the new post-apocalyptic thriller The Book of Eli, Denzel Washington plays the title character, a man traveling a scorched and desolate Earth. For almost thirty years he has toiled under the burden of a divine missive - take an untitled tome and deliver it West.

Along the way, he runs into the dregs of remaining humanity - highway thugs who rob and murder, cannibals who feast on the flesh of humans for food. Somewhere deep in the middle of America, the despot Gary Oldman of a decaying ghost town wants the manuscript Eli is carrying. If it's what he thinks it is, it will provide all the power he needs to rule the world.

This is not The Road, however. Life as we know it may be circumvented for various acts of debauchery or evil, but there is hope on the horizon. Though he's desperate for the sway said book holds over people, Oldman's Carnegie just wants to bring the planet back -with him in charge, of course.

His microcosm of thieves and killers might be wicked, but in his mind, it's a way back from the madness the Final War has wrought. Thus the Hughes Brothers, filmmakers famous for such unusual fare as Menace II Society, Dead Presidents, and From Hell, have their own religious allegory to contemplate - the sacred vs.

Set against an enigmatic and atmospheric backdrop, the duo avoids the standard sci-fi trappings to forge something meaningful and memorable. At first, we think we've figured Washington out. He's the typical loner, the Mad Max of this new scorched Earth order, the sole voice of reason above a din of inequity and animalistic instinct. He's part monk, part martial arts bad-ass, someone capable of single handedly wiping out an entire gang of hooligans while remaining virtuous and sanctified.

He seems chosen, lifted above the rest of the rabble as he moves along with razor sharp focus. Of course, he is given a temptation along the way - the teenage daughter of Oldman's gal pal. Played by Mila Kunis, she is the unformed clay, the child who's never known another world.

She's never known grass, or culture, or civilization. Now, not only does Eli have to save the planet, he has to save her soul as well. The directors definitely have their work cut out for them.

Not only does Cormac McCarthy carry a Pulitzer and even more impressive, an Oprah stamp of approval for his similarly themed look at existence after Armageddon, but they are battling against the cinema's standard intolerance toward religion and faith as well. The pious usually don't play well inside the motion picture barricade.

They are often the butt of jokes, or viciously intolerant. Worse, they will sometime be the most corrupt of a conceit overflowing with fraud. But in The Book of Eli, our hero is truly noble. Sure, he handles a sword with lethal blood flowing agility, but he is merely protecting his promise.

Even when faced with insurmountably odd, Eli can weather a storm - fire or otherwise. With their dry, desaturated color scheme and future shock art design, the Hugheses manufacture a realm that's reminiscent of the Old West.When he flips open the Zippo lighter to trade to the shopkeeper, he holds his hand over the flame to check that it's working.

Life as we know it may be circumvented for various acts of debauchery or evil, but there is hope on the horizon. There is one instance where he steps into a situation from which there is no possible escape other than violence, but he is not the one instigating the fight.

The pious usually don't play well inside the motion picture barricade.
